Pooss family tree
I am currently researching my mother's family tree, her maiden name was Pooss and her family are from Dorset, England. There is a record in Preston (Sutton Poyntz) parish of 1832 of the marriage of Lucy Pooss to William Fancy, with the witness John Pooss. My grandfather was Percy John Pooss of Poole, Dorset.
The family legend was always that the old name was Van Pooss, and they came across from Holland with William of Orange, tho this may just be a yarn!
